I apologize if this has been addressed. I read the back several pages in addition to the very helpful intro, but didn't see anything about a split stay with the club level fast passes. If we have 4 nights in a regular room and 2 nights in a club level room, will be be able to purchase the fast passes for any of the days during our stay or will it be limited to the days we are staying club level?

TIA!

It’ll be for the 3 CL days.

Assume you have a FP for an attraction that is weather dependent and it is closed.

Do you get an anytime FP for that particular attraction? Or an anytime FP for any attraction?

In the event I have an anytime FP, how does that affect ability to pick up 4th+ FP? Do I have to use the anytime FP before I can pick up 4th+?

This question is in preparation for coming week when Dorian may be closing attractions for extended periods of time.

    When an FP anytimes, you get a multi experience FP for that ride and most of the other rides in that park. Multi experience FPs will generally exclude more popular or higher tier rides in the park (a mutli for Spaceship Earth won't work at test track but will be valid for the other epcot tier 2s).

    When it goes multi, the FP no longer counts against your total for the day. You can immediately pull another FP while you hold it. If it was one of your initial tier 2 rides, then it also means you will have to pick up and use another tier 2 before you can refresh for a tier one.

    In my same example, if your Spaceship Earth FP went multi and you used it later in the day, along with another tier 2 and a tier 1, the system will only treat you as having used one tier 2 FP and won't let you refresh for a tier 1 until you do another tier 2.

    I was surprised that when AK closed early this week due to the weather I had an expedition Everest fast pass in the evening that we couldn’t use since parks closed... and couldn’t find an earlier time... we didn’t get a multi experience fast pass for the next day. It wasn’t really needed but usually when a ride closes you get one.

    I was on a group on another social media page where some folks reported recently that simply letting their Tier 2 FPs expire wasn't working, now you actually have to tap in (and ride or not) before you can book your 4th FP. So here was my plan. Our flight gets in mid-afternoon and I was planning on booking some random Tier 2 at HS earlier in the day, then a Star Tours and (fingers crossed) Slinky Dog or TSMM after that - we ride both Star Tours and the Tier 1 with the other Tier 2 having expired earlier in the day. This worked for us in June.

    But it sounds like my Tier 2 from earlier in the day expiring doesn't count as "used" any more? Is this a change since June?

    It depends. Nothing has changed, it just sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. I would think it should expire because you are using #2 and #3 but there's really no way to know ahead of time.

    Okay, so no changes, maybe just glitchy or perhaps people not realizing that they have to wait for the END of the window of that FP that they aren't using? I wonder why all these people are thinking that it's no longer working.

    I've had them not fall off, even many hours after the window. I've also had them expire properly. People just go off of their latest experience and stories they hear. I do like to prepare people to have to deal with it not expiring because it can throw things off if that was your plan and it doesn't expire.

    Glad I read these tips b/c it helped me tighten up my schedule all the more, and prepare for our day of stuff. Especially for DHS. With all the good stuff being Tier 1 now, most of the Tier 2s are a waste. We are planning DHS in the morning/afternoon, then Epcot that late afternoon/evening.

    I had FPs for RnRc, Star Tours and Muppets. The muppets was a garbage FP. I made it about 15 mins before our lunch ADR knowing I could tap but not ride and make my 4th one for Epcot later in the day. But reading this, sounds like my best bet is to cancel it in advance so that once I tap in at RnRc I can go ahead and schedule that third one. And also, if I get to Star Tours and it's a low wait, I can cancel that one as well (rather than tapping) and have two I can make at Epcot in advance. Is that correct? Can only one of those two Epcot ones be Tier 1, or does it matter since they are at a different park?

    Correct. Cancel Muppets. Only 1 EP can be a tier 1, so keep Star Tours. Then you can try for a second EP tier 1 faster.

    Hi guys!
    Tomorrow is our FP day.
    We will be spending 3 weeks at Disney, so plan on doing multiple days at each park and splitting each visit up by spending the 3-4 hours in one area of the park.
    Any suggestions on how to break the days up by area of park; and FP picks in this case?

    HS: Our kids are young so we will be skipping ToT and RnRC during the day; we will try our luck going back without them at night while they’re with grandma.
    Epcot: we are staying at BCV and plan on heading over multiple nights for Food and Wine and Festival of the Holidays, so we plan on touring World Showcase on those nights. We will do a few mornings touring, 3 hours or so each time. 9a-noon likely.
    MK: Visiting 5+ mornings, 9a-noonish. Staying later one day for parade. Have reserved seating from Tony’s package.
    AK: Visiting 3ish times. 9am-noon or so.

    I haven't read all 44 pages, but I have skimmed a bit, and didn't see my question addressed.

    I am going for 7 days, onsite for the first night and then offsite at a 60-day FP eligible hotel. Unfortunately, I have not been able to link the Disney Springs hotel, so Disney offered me phone CM help with booking the last 5 days of my stay with phone CMs (I was able to book the first two days myself from the onsite stay). Last night I booked FP for those dates, but they're not "regular" FP. I cannot modify them; only a phone CM can do that, or guest services at the park. In MDX, it says "please enjoy an extra Fastpass+ experience! Experience, arrival window and number of Guests can't be changed."

    What are my options? I took some not entirely optimal times for SDD with the intention of using modify. I asked if I would be able to modify once I'm in the 30-day window, and was told no. I don't want to sound ungrateful because I do appreciate the courtesy of having the CM book my FP, but I don't like being truly locked into the choices I made yesterday for the majority of my trip.
